matter of me spending political capital. >> president obama on "meet the press" over the weekend. in the wake of the newtown, connecticut school shootings. the president insisted he wants new gun control legislation passed in the next year. he put vice president biden in charge of that task force to make recommendations to him. democratic congressman john yarmouth of kentucky joins us now and he sits on the budget oversight and government reform and ethics committees. good to see you. >> good to be with you. >> what is your thought on what the president said on "meet the press?" >> i think he is absolutely right. what sets this apart, however, is that we do have presidential leadership on this issue. that is something that hasn't been there during past attempts to do something to curb gun violence. i am thrilled about that. i agree with him totally. i've said many times the public has to keep the drum beat going because unless there is a perceived cost to many of the politicians up here not much is likely to happen. we have to make sure the public is engaged and continues to be engag

, in an exclusive interview, president obama sat down with me in the blue room of the white house to discuss the way forward and his priorities for a second term. >> mr. president, welcome back to "meet the press." >> great to be here, thank you. >> the obvious question -- are we going over the fiscal cliff? >> well, i think we're going to find out in the next 48 hours what congress decides to do. but i think it's important for the american people to understand exactly what this fiscal cliff is. because it's actually not that complicated. the tax cuts that were introduced in 2001, 2003, 2010, those were extended and they're all about to expire at the end of the year. so on midnight, december 31st, if congress doesn't act, then everybody's taxes go up. and for the average family, that could mean a loss of $2,000 in income. for the entire economy, that means consumers have a lot less money to make purchases, which means businesses are going to have a lot less customers, which means that they're less likely to hire and the whole economy could slow down at a time when the economy is star

. >> let's take a listen to something that president obama said on "meet the press" today. >> if all else fails, if republicans do in fact decide to block it so that taxes on middle class families do in, fact, go up on january 1st, then we'll come back with a new congress on january 4th, and the first bill that will be introduced on the floor will be to cut taxes on middle class families, and, you know, i don't think the average person is going to say, gosh, you know, that's a -- that's a really partisan agenda on the part of either the president or democrats in congress. i think people will say that makes sense because that's what the economy needs right now. one way or another we'll get through this. >> it kind of sounds like the president is prepared for this to go into next year, and if it does, who do you think gets the blame? >> well, call it instead of democrats plan "b" call it plan "c" for cliff because i think democrats for a while have held the upper hand on these fiscal cliff negotiations because what is it all mean? this is about taxes for democrats, and the bush tax cuts exp

president's first press conference after his reelection, mr. obama reminded americans that america had chosen him and his agenda over them. but republican senators essentially blocked susan right before she was ever nominated as secretary of state. now be prominent republicans are signaling troubling ahead for a fellow republicans, chuck hagel of nebraska if the president nominates him as the next defense sek. >> i don't think he's going to get me republican i like. but his positions i didn't frankly know all of them are really out of the mainstream and well to the left of the president. i think it lab challenging nomination but the hearings will matter. >> well, the president is not getting much help from democrats either. here's senator chuck schumer answering whether he would support senator hagel's nomination. take a listen. >> i'd have to study his record. i'm not going to comment until the president makes a nomination. >> joining me now, presidential historian michael beschloss. some republicans say they go have problems with hagel's opposition to the war in iraq, that's one

anyone ever. so at the core fundamental here, it's hard to say president obama didn't get a victory here in that he broke a republican precedent that's been really firmly established, and that's the biggest thing as you look forward. now he's going to try to press republicans to support more tax increases. and that's a big change in how washington has been governed up to now. >> perry bacon, lynn sweet, thanks to both of you. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> okay, so the bill's moving to the house, but republican leaders haven't said exactly when it will come up for a vote. on the contrary, a statement from the four top republicans was careful to say they would allow members to review the legislation before deciding the next step. with me now, pennsylvania's democratic congressman jason altmire, who will complete his term in office this week. congressman, thanks for being with us. >> thank you for having me. happy new year. >> happy new year! well, yesterday afternoon before the senate bill was passed, you predicted the legislation that was taking shape would pass the house with a sub
